Intel silently introduced Braswell-based SoCs for entry-level desktops and notebooks. These new parts are made on a 14nm process, the lineup features three Celeron chips and one Pentium. One of the models has a TDP of just 4W while the other three have a 6W TDP. The pricing is identical to that of the Bay Trail predecessors.
Braswell processors integrate 1 or 2 CPU modules, a graphics unit, a DDR3 memory controller, chipset logic and I/O interfaces. Each CPU module is comprised of two "Airmont" CPU cores, backed up by 1 MB shared L2 cache. The cores have enabled SIMD instructions up to SSE4, and support Intel 64, virtualization and Burst Performance technologies. The GPU is built on Generation 8 LP architecture, and it incorporates up to 16 execution units. The memory controller supports DDR3-1600 memory on all SKUs.
